parts per billion.... that just comes from the water they use... i mean its impossible to get water that has nothing in it.. even the most clean acid washed distilling apparatus still has things on it. 11.8 ppb is so low i dont even know how they measured that.

It`s not the coke`s pesticide, its because the bugs drink the cola and they`re satisfied. Even good drinks can help stop bugs from eating your plants. Because cola is just.that.good

apparently coke has ddt in it which if you google is now an illegal substance which was onece used in vietnam to kill trees and bushes so they could see the charlie from above. Also it gets stored in you for years and gradually builds up. In britain and probably other places it has destrowyed much wildlife. It is definently fake

You guys are all saying `do some research` and `bull poo` before actually doing some research yourself and simply commenting on it after viewing just this video.

Go here: http://www.coca-colaindia.com/quality/fa...

Also, to those who`re saying `I`ll die early but happy`, ever thought about what if you DON`T die, but live the remaining years from ailments caused by your `glory day binges`? I used to be a daily beef and cola drinker and I`d say `whatever, I`ll die young but I`ll die satisfied and happy`.

Until my doctor girlfriend simply said `yeah, but what if you don`t die, and live till 80 with diabetes and a heart condition?`

Yeah? Well, tap water can give you cancer now, apparently, so... what isn`t bad for you these days? I drink about 3 cokes a day on average, and I may not know what`s in them, but whatever it is, it`s delicious. Wouldn`t change a damn thing. Of course, I may not live past 35, but at least I`ll die deliciously.

"Um... they need a little fact behind this. Coke has SUGAR in it which would attract a lot more then it would protect from."

i was thinking the exact same thing, but then maybe they drink the coke from it and dont touch the plants... or maybe they get stuck to it...

ive been to a permaculture farm and the lady put wine or something in a container and put it in to garden, the slugs became attracted to that and not the plants, so maybe it could work.

Coke and pepsi in India specifically has way more pesticides than coke produced in other parts of the world. So, Coke in India is actually harmful, while coke here isn`t so bad. And there is no empirical data showing that soda leeches clacium, and the only thing that rots your teeth is the sugar.

Even if there isn`t enough pesticide in the soda to really hurt you. Soda isn`t good for you to begin with. Leeches calcium from your bones and rots your teeth. I got 9 cavities one year when the only thing I had changed from the year before was I drank more pop.

People seem to be reading into this wrong..it says people in India USE it as pesticide, the softdrink does not CONTAIN pesticides. Besides, a company who`s been around for hundreds of years isn`t about to jeopardize their business by putting pesticides in it.

You got to remember that in third world countries soft drink makers don`t care what ingredients they use. Look at China, they`ll throw anythiing into their foodstuffs to make the mighty dollar. Here`s the message to the world... Just because you live in a third world country doesn`t mean you have to remain ingorant and moronic. It`s called being enlightened, learn to read, get on the internet, ask someone with some education to tell you what`s what.

This is the same kind of argument that people use when they tell you coke can eat through a nail if you let it sit there for a while. In case nobody`s noticed, our stomachs aren`t made of iron, and the acids in the cola can`t break down the organic tissues of the stomach wall, let alone get through the mucus barrier.

If Coke was a pesticide, how are we able to drink it?

Anyway, Coke is like ~35% sugar, and it would attract bugs, not get the away.

NO LOGIC.

if it really contained enough pesticides to spark a news report we`d already be severely sick from drinking it. chances are if they really tested for pesticides it was probably at that manufacturing plant in the video which clearly is not in America or Canada which means their guidelines to safe and clean facility`s are not as high and that means it has a better chance of becoming contaminated. so drink up everyone.

Coke and Pepsi contain an awful lot of sugar to be repelling bugs.

"Not that Coke is healthy or anything, but there are other reasons that it could repel insects other than that it contains pesticides"

Good thought. Maybe its some ingredient in Coke that bugs don`t like which keeps bugs away, rather than actual pesticide dumped into a batch of Coke.

There`s a difference between "effectively used as pesticide" and "contains a pesticide"

Not that Coke is healthy or anything, but there are other reasons that it could repel insects other than that it contains pesticides. And if you know anything about statistics, fifty samples isn`t enough to prove anything, especially if they are all taken from the same plant.

well it`s not really made for bugs to drink. if you poured most other drinks on bugs they probably wouldn`t survive. Yeah, soda is an acid, but that doesn`t mean its necissarily gonna kill you
